Tourism strategy and engagement
Tourism has potential to attract and grow our primary sectors. It can enhance quality of life by creating a sense of place, which would support major employers in the area with talent attraction. It can also support the retail community and cultivate economic diversification.
"If developed effectively, tourism has the potential to have a significant diversifying effect on the economic base of Strathcona County."
The strategy has been approved
At the Strathcona County Council meeting on September 8, 2020, the Tourism Strategy and Implementation Plan was officially approved (18.2 MB) . While the Draft Tourism Strategy and Implementation Plan has been extensive for the past year, Strathcona County now has a strategy and plan to begin building the tourism industry in the municipality.
- Final Tourism Strategy and Implementation Plan (18.2 MB)
- Final Tourism Strategy and Implementation Plan Presentation (2.2 MB)
The strategy will help us understand what Strathcona County and the business community can do to support the community and economy through tourism.
The next steps
The first steps for strengthening the tourism industry in Strathcona County begins with everyone. The strategy is designed to be a community owned plan, and input and implementation starts with its stakeholders, citizens, and county administration.
